by gadhafi's forces. gadhafi's forces are also now changing their tactics. they've been using tanks for the last several days but have discovered that those tanks are so easily identified and destroyed by western air strikes. now gadhafi's troops are using small units, going out in jeeps, civilian cars, going through the desert and then flanking the rebels. it makes it much more difficult for pilots to look down at the battlefield and identify who's who. from a pilot's perspective, all they see are rebels in pickup trucks with guns. and gadhafi's forces in very similar vehicles also with guns. now, in some ways, it's more of a level playing field, but gadhafi's forces continue to have much better command and control, and a much better sense of tactics. richard engel, nbc news, benghazi. >> nbc's richard inge el in libya, thank you. nbc's nick is here. obviously, they're going to face tough questions, especially about the possibility of arming the rebels. what are they likely to say? >> first of all, this is a closed door session for members of congress. the joint chief's chairman ad
